I have just completed my new Kindle book: 027-2012 Introduction to 3D Modeling (Short Sharp Manuals) [Kindle Edition]. This Kindle ebook is based on the Vector-workout Subscription manual for February 2012.
If you got a Kindle or iPad for Xmas, Well Done!
Some people describe my manuals as eBooks. I am not sure this really describes my manuals. I think the eBooks sounds like an electronic book with lots of words and pages. My manuals also contain a lot of video. So I think of my books as being Video books (vBooks). I think this describes my books better.
Amazon has announced a new kindle device. This is a development of the 2nd generation Kindle device, which WILL be available in NZ, with WIFI only.
Vectorworks has several irrigation tools. There are tools for placing sprinkers, pipes, and drip emitters, and there are worksheets for counting these objects.
I have just had an email from a client using Windows 7. He was having trouble seeing the movies I’ve embedded into the pdf copy of the manual. This is not unusual if you do not open the PDF with Acrobat Reader. Normally this affects Macintosh clients, because they have a habit of double clicking on the PDF to start.
I have been looking at ebooks on the Internet lately, and I am starting to see them as being more useful.
I’ve been looking at ebooks since I got my first Palm Pilot, about ten years ago. At first I found them to be too small to read, and too many pages. A small novel turns into a thousand pages. The would end up with writing was too small, or there would end up with just one paragraph on each page.
Lately, I’ve been trying out ebooks on my iPhone. The screen is small, but not too small. The text is easy to resize. You can read landscape or portrait, and it’s easy to change the brightness.
Ideally, if the iPhone was bigger, it would be even better, like the Kindle from Amazon. I would love to try out a Kindle, but they don’t sell the kindle where I live. Is there anyone out there with a kindle willing to tell me what it is like? Please leave a comment, or email me.
The new Apple iPad should be the answer. Like an iPhone, but bigger.
